Brits selling out Afghanistan to Taliban?

It's a throwaway line in a Pakistani newspaper, but it makes you wonder if the Brits aren't trying to cut a deal to save Gordon Brown's election prospects next year, and cut a deal with the Devil known as the Taliban.
The British plan – which will be tabled at the London conference – calls for the Taliban to share power in the next 18 months with the current regime and the group’s members to be integrated into the Afghan Army. With British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s own future hanging in the balance, he must explain the continuing British involvement in Afghanistan. Brown may be pushing the Afghan plan for his own sake, but it could have the secret approval of the US president.
